  1. "Evidence"

    Temperature rise, ice melt, sea level rise that corresponds to the increase in CO2 is only supported by manipulated and bogus data.

    What is bogus and baseless is the hysteria claim that "human-caused climate change" makes so many weather events worse.

  2. Ice core samples are never mentioned because they totally debunk the freedom and money grab known as global warming…little by little your freedoms are taken, slowly so we don't realize

  3. It's so cold I've heard in Chicago today's weather standing outside in just a shirt and denim jeans your internal organs will freeze up. Within 15 mins just standing still

  4. its -60 in Montana and 40 in Antarctica but sure global warming exist somehow. Its 100 degrees colder in Montana than in Antarctica.

  5. there has always been climate change, its just you have to live long enough to notice the difference from youth to old age, i don't like the term 'golbal warming' whether it is accurate or not, i prefer the term 'climate change' which is accurate

  6. Part of it is fake, part of it is not, the earth was hotter during the Bronze Age and the last mini ice age you could ice skate under the London Bridge. Human activity isn't as impactful as much as man's hubris. The weather is great where I live.

  7. We it's super hot it's global warming. When it's super cold it's global warming. If it doesn't rain, if it's raining a lot. I call bs

  8. There's nothing anyone can do at this point. Get right in you're heart with Jesus Christ and repent for the sin in your life.

  9. NBC, you say you provide fair reporting so how about doing some reporting on the Grand Solar Minimum which goes against man-made global warming or climate change as they are now calling it. If you do, don't interview government funded scientists but rather climate scientists that can talk intelligently on the GSM and specifically scientists that are now retired. While you're at it how about incorporating the weakening magnetic shield and the pole shift that's going on and how they could all be related to weather and events we are experiencing now. I'm betting you won't take the challenge.

  10. If you don’t understand it takes increased energy to displace an airmass off the pole and into the interior of the continent, you need a course in physics, thermodynamics, and climatology. F-ing dumb Americans.

  11. I'm in Haines, Alaska where it's 35°F and rain tonight. The cold air on the mainland pulled warm air from the the pacific to our shores. I moved here from Minnesota. I love this coast!

  12. People who think global warming is not real have not taken a global warming class at a University, it’s real, I took the class. You ignorant people!

  13. : warmer land temperatures, particularly in northern North America and northern Eurasia, allow more heat to be transported into the Arctic stratosphere. And those events destabilize the polar vortex, bring cold air down into the mid-latitudes, and cause the extreme weather we're experiencing right now. Not too hard to understand..If you take the time..instead of wasting time trying to debunk what you don't understand.

  14. It's just a spell of cold weather, however it is fun to tweek the alarmists with anti-global warming stories. During heatwaves the media weathermen are often working in their Global Warming innuendos. Turnabout is fair play.

  15. Scary for people in the future.. it's seems tho I will be apart of it and see it.texas flooding , other parts of the world heating up.mankind will be its own destruction..

  16. The oceans are too warm to allow cold air south, so, it must use land to go south balancing the equatorial overheating, it's all too easy to fix!

    Just cool the oceans back down, eh?

  17. climate change skepticism? what do you need temperatures at 150 degrees and -80? Wake up people this is real and its only going to get worse We need change now!!!!!!

  18. So cold is global warming, heat is global warming, storms ,rain, hail , flooding, droughts,hurricanes and tornados are global warming too. Now that makes a whole lot of sense.

  19. Carbon,is not about climate,it changess it, it is in trapped ice too,in Lexington ky, they reported this,like it was the greatest discovery NBC had ever uncovered, ever hear of earth day?I'm sure,most American people have,but,it was always,buried,as a story,because oil companies have more money,so,climate problems,are from false reporting, and cover up,like the stormy Daniels story, all the same,may your soul rest one day.

  20. I would much rather we focus on cleaning up our oceans than focusing on anything to do with AGW and climate change.

    clean the oceans. somehow reduce the amount of plastic litter. work towards clean air and clean water. climate change? don't care.

  21. No, there is no climate change in the USA. ……IT's not mentioned in the Bible, sorry. Everybody knows how accurate the book is and all the events and predictions in it. While we at it, I have a pair of unicorns who had triplets. Doing well and will be on a display to the public in a couple of months. Everybody welcome

  22. Debating whether or not climate change is real or not is not like debating whether God exists or not.
    It's like debating whether electricity exists or not.

  23. Had a record breaking summer in 2018 in the Netherlands. And relative warm winters for almost 25 years in a row. Some people don't get it that the averages are changing and that small changes can cause local extremes if the conditions are right. One thing is for sure, global warming does NOT mean that it can't get cold at all anymore, and one cold winter does NOT mean that global warming is a hoax. More heat = more energy = more powerful weather phenomena, it's simple as that. For Trump and his goons this whole global warming issue is way to complex. On top of that those goons think that something is taken away from them when you speak about doing something about global warming.

  24. This is caused by the polar vortex slipping. The extreme cold of the Arctic and the heat of the tropics used to keep this jet stream wind whizzing around the Arctic and keeping the cold in place. But the Arctic is heating up astronomically and that is making the Polar Vortex go wobbly (like a spinning top slowing down). This is why the extreme cold has spilled out – it's a direct and catastrophic result of a super heated Arctic.

  25. If global warming is a real thing how do you explain that people all over the world in places likely to be covered by water are able to get financing for real estate. The people pushing this narrative have a lot to gain by way of carbon taxes. The rest of the people pushing the narrative actually believe what they are saying just like people from over 4000 religions on this planet would bet their life that their religion is the one true religion. Just saying

  26. We need to shut our heat off, we are causing the climate to change for the worse.Climate change is real and by using natural gas we pollute our air.Stop using gas, oil, or electricity.

  27. I by no means I'm going to sit here and say climate change is fake but humans are not exacerbating it as much as people think, water vapor is the main greenhouse gas thousands of times stronger than CO2, methane is way more potent of a greenhouse gas than CO2 the climate was Raising in temperature from the mini Ice Age 500 years ago till 1998 it started lowering in temperature this is a cash grab that's all it is. Look at the actual science and study it, don't just watch a bias video. You literally get grants from the government just to include man-made climate change is real in your science study we have a flawed peer review system and politicians are using it to make money off of us.

  28. Our planet has already accumulated a large amount of emissions, and to stabilize or reduce the atmospheric concentration of greenhouse gases, current emissions must be reduced by at least 90 per cent, which requires the implementation of emissions reduction technology … I believe that the stabilization target can in fact be achieved only by interventions in the form of geoengineering and carbon drawdown technology, and that if the world strives to restrain global warming to 1.5– 2°C by carbon emission cuts alone, the result will be an embarrassing failure … It is a problem in chemistry, physics and technology, a giant problem, but not one that is greater than that of building a huge bomb out of a reaction which previously was only observed among single atoms in a laboratory. It is the most important problem that the world faces. If we solve it, our human civilization can continue, and we can devote our energies to all our other myriad challenges, from overpopulation to water and food shortages, disease and war. If we don’t solve it, we are finished. ~Peter Wadhams, A Farewell to Ice, Penguin, 2016.

  29. How come the additional Co2 is coming from the areas nearer the equator but heating the North Pole most. ? It is hard to see why it would work this way, chemical reactions usually don't.

  30. Why don't you guys go get your new "climate change" hero Oscio Cortez or whatever the F her name is and go tell the folks in North Dakota where its colder than the North Pole that the world is going to end in 12 years because of "climate change".

  31. So they complain about polar ice caps melting and have commercials of polar bear looking for a loft…..now it's too cold apparently 😂🤣😂👌🏿🖕🏿
